I would be surprised if this made the first few pages of the Lisburn Star. This is a poor story for UTV. Hope the BBC don't do a spotlight special. Sorry for the dogs owners all the same

The reason why it is on the news is because it is illegal for a driver to flee the scene after hitting a dog. There is no excuse not to stop.

Its news worthy because, failing to stop at the scene of an accident is, a criminal offence. Imagine if it was a child, hit and run? Hmm? Driver needs to be brought to justice. Fact!
